Igbo lawyers demand probe of bomb scare on Nwodo’s country home
Igbo lawyers under the aegis of Otu Oka-Iwu (Law Society) have expressed “shock and dismay” on the bombing of the country-home of the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief John Nnia Nwodo.
In a solidarity message to the Ohanaeze helmsman signed by the President of the law society, Chief Chuks Ikokwu, the lawyers described the perpetrators of the bombing as “cowards and the real enemies of society and Ndigbo,” adding that “it is worrisome that several days after the incident, no suspects have been apprehended.”
According to the association, whether the bombing is the act of some misguided persons or state actors, “It is imperative that government mobilizes all necessary personnel and resources to fish out the perpetrators and speedily bring them to justice.”
The law society noted that the mandate given to Chief Nwodo by Ndigbo “is a divine call to duty,” adding that “for that reason, no amount of intimidation should cow you to throw in the towel.”
The association stated that it “follows closely the bold and courageous initiatives” that the Ohanaeze chieftain had taken since his election “towards restoring Igbo voice and dignity in the Nigerian polity.”
